Why do I need this assessment?

  • Are sources of fuel and ignition controlled?
  • Is there adequate means for detecting fire and giving warning?
  • Is there adequate means of escape in case of fire from all parts of the premises?
  • Are evacuation plans and responsible persons clearly highlighted to all who use the practice?
  • Has adequate and appropriate firefighting equipment been provided, and is it suitably located?

  • Have employees been adequately trained in fire safety procedures within the premises and in the use of firefighting equipment?
  • Is evidence available from induction?
